R3 - Making Research Relevant & Ready Grantees Announced

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

WEST HARTFORD, CT -- Donaghue is happy to announce the five grant awardees for the second round of R3 - Making Research Relevant & Ready grant program.

R3 was developed to help promote knowledge created from Donaghue-funded research so that it will improve health. Each grantee will receive $55,000 to conduct their project over an 18 month period. R3 funds will enable the grantees to access experts in areas relevant to scaling, spread, and implementation.

The project leaders, institution, project title, and their consulting partners are listed below. We hope the R3 grant program continues to help researchers make progress in preparing their health interventions for adoption and use.  Look for more information about the new R3 grantees and their projects on our website later this month or feel free to contact the Foundation if you wish to learn more.
